lyrics

thirty seven days at sea
i think i am a snowflake
so i will leave these words
just in case my old bones
wash up on some black shore
and i miss your birthday

so you will recognize me
so you can see yourself
so you can know my heart

i am writing down the good things
every wounded heart and bloody ring
behind the brave words and the smoke screens
i am hoping that you'll know it's me

there is no compass
where are my shipmates?
where is my sailing hand?
there is no badly-drawn map
there is no turning back
there is no sign of land

and would i recognize it?
if i was stranded on it?
would i know your heart?

i am writing down the good things
every wounded heart and bloody ring
behind the brave words and the smoke screens
i am hoping that you'll know it's me

if you find these pages in the sugarcane
leave my body at the water line
for the tide to take away
my heart is not there anyway

about

Rob Lamothe Ontario

The Toronto Star says I am ‘a mercurial artist who slides effortlessly from rustic roots music to soulful country pop to full-blown rock balladry’. Works for me!
